The Michigan Association for College Admission Counseling (MACAC) will be assisting in the efforts of relief to Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Our friends with the Texas Association for College Admission Counseling (TACAC) are asking for relief donations to assist with the colleges and high schools affected by Hurricane Harvey through their Anne Naman fund.
“Anne was a TACAC leader and mentor and firmly believed in the power of education and was a strong proponent of professional development opportunities. In her memory, The Anne Naman TACAC Fund was established to provide grant assistance to support programs and education professional for their continued growth and development.” Funds received from August 27-September 30, will be donated to colleges and high schools affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Anne Aresty Naman was born in Highland Park, Illinois. She graduated from Central High School in Omaha, Nebraska in 1969. She received her B.A. degree from Wellesley College in 1973 and then specialized in nineteenth-century English literature at the University of Sussex in Brighton, England where she received the M.A. and M.Phil research degrees, graduating in 1976.
Anne was involved in teaching English both on the high school and college level. She began her teaching tenure at St. Johns School and ultimately became a college counselor. She left St. Johns in 1996 and became Director of College Counseling at The John Cooper School in The Woodlands, TX where she remained until her retirement in 2012.
She was an active member of the National Honor Society Phi Beta Kappa as well as a the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). For over 20 years, Anne served as an active Texas Association for College Admission Counseling (TACAC) member and received the Honorary Lifetime Member award in 2013.”
Members of the MACAC Executive board will match membership donations up to $400. Donations will be collected through September 12th and will then be presented to the Texas ACAC during the NACAC Annual Conference in Boston.
